Question about Audio Players & Recorders
PLAYBACK ONLY ON ONE CHANNEL
Clean switches, check head wiring if it is a three head deck and then there could be bad relay contacts, defective electrolytic capacitors and even a malfunction in a muting circuit. That is why there are no easy answer but to get in with a scope and find out where the signal stops.

The motor is probably faulty. The heat is a give away for that. Many motors for older decks can still be sourced. Can you see what part numbers may be on the back plate of the motor and I can find a source for you. Awaiting your reply

Is it electronic or mechanical? The left channel is the physical outer edge of the tape. It's more sensitive to damage and sloppy contact with the heads. If you can see a wave in light reflected off the tape it's probably shot.
When's the last time you cleaned the heads?

SOURCE: my sony cassette deck will
Chances are there is a fault on the right channel. It could be caused by a faulty switch or a wire off on the tape head. Lastly a fault in the electronics.

There are no fuses in this unit. The decks can't read or record because either the connection switches from the heads to the boards have failed or the power source is no longer active.
You will need to locate the switch by following the data cable coming from the heads and determine why it has failed and how it can be fixed. Then check the connections from the switch to the signal board. Finally check the power : the output of the transformer and the filtering and stabilization stages.
